The Winners: GQ Men of the Year Awards 2012 | Jamie Tuohy

London’s Royal Opera House was the venue for the 2012 GQ Men of the Year awards last night, as the great and the good of the showbiz word descended on the venue for the annual ceremony.

Katherine Jenkins, Tinie Tempah, Lana Del Ray, Gary Barlow, David Gandy, Jessie J and a plethora of famous faces were out in force to celebrate the awards which recognise the contributions of various different men from the worlds of politics and entertainment.

Katherine Jenkins turned heads in a risqué Stella McCartney gown and despite the night being all about the gentlemen, her arrival caused a flurry of photographers to furiously snap her every move, as she emerged for the first time, in the wake of the allegations of her affair with David Beckham.

Katherine vehemently denied the reports and looked sensational in her black dress – even if cyclist Victoria Pendleton did have a near identical one on, albeit in a shorter version.

Amidst the high octane glamour of Jessie J, Katherine Jenkins and Kelly Brook et al, Lana Del Rey dazzled in a white satin dress and was awarded Woman of the Year.

Last year’s most stylish man and all round GQ favourite Tinie Tempah secured the award for Solo Artist of the Year, but relinquished his most Stylish Man of the Year accolade to X Factor presenter Dermot O’Leary.

Dermot (whose style I will coincidentally be blogging about in the next few days) scooped the Most Stylish prize for being, “the best-suited male on primetime television” and for his championing of British tailoring.

It was a good night for Gary Barlow and Robbie Williams, who both walked home with awards – Outstanding Achievement and Icon respectively.

Sir Salman Rushdie was crowned GQ’s Inspiration and the Legend accolade went to Sir Tom Jones.

Irish actor Michael Fassbender rounded off his successful year by scooping the Actor of the Year award, following his performances in movies such as Prometheus and Shame.

The awards, which were hosted by comedians Jimmy Carr and David Walliams, also saw Dolce and Gabbana winning Designer of the Year, Sacha Baron Cohen walking away with Comedian of the Year, following his movie The Dictator and Bradley Wiggins winning the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Britain’s Olympic and Paralympic teams won Team of the Year for 2012 and were represented by the likes of Mo Farah, Bradley Wiggins, Victoria Pendleton, Sir Chris Hoy.
